With the application of the Cryo-Pen Therapy flat angled age spots can be removed efficiently. In contrast to the CO-2 laser no pigment movement and displacement takes place. Therefore, the Cryo-Pen therapy works very well for the removal of age spots.
By frozen cold the melatonin producing cells are blocked in their meltonin production, so that no more melatonin can be produced and therefore the pigmentation vanishes. For a time span of approximately ten days the treated skin area is dark coloured and in cases ‘bubbles’ can emerge, which spontaneously go away. It is important here to protect the skin with a sunblocker for six months here.
We generally recomment to use sun blockers every day in order to avoid the development of age spots, but also most importantly skin cancer.
